Here is another deception that almost escaped my eye:
: 1975 Yearbook
: *** yb75 193-4 United States of America (Part Two) ***
CLOSING DAYS AT BETH-SARIM
: “In time, a direct contribution was made for the purpose of constructing a house in San Diego for Brother Rutherford’s use. It was not built at the expense of the Watch Tower Society. Concerning this property, the 1939 book Salvation stated: “At San Diego, California, there is a small piece of land, on which, in the year 1929, there was built a house, which is called and known as Beth-Sarim.”
While it is true that the HOUSE itself did sit on a SMALL piece of land (most houses do), the Beth-Sarim property consisted of a number of lots of contiguous land comprising approximately 100 acres.
Hardly "small" by anyone's definition.
The society's use of the word "small" is clearly deceptive, since the house is by far the biggest house in that very prestigious neighborhood.
This quote from the 1975 yearbook was in turn taken from the 1939 book "Salvation." Can anyone guess WHO wrote that book, and therefore that quote?
"When in doubt, duck!"
